Health Sciences Program 


The goal of the health sciences program is to provide students with a fundamental background in health promotion and disease prevention. This background will enable them to understand the role that health promotion plays in society and the mechanisms that affect public and community health while also considering the complexities of maintaining an optimal level of personal health. The health science program is viewed as an excellent option for undergraduate students who are preparing to enter graduate school in public health, health promotion, and health education, as well as other health-related graduate or professional programs such as medicine or dentistry. 

Graduates of the Health Sciences program receive a Bachelor of Arts degree in Kinesiology with Concentration in Health Sciences.
